Creating & Maintaining a Healthy Church Culture

wsmleaderscircle.jpgby Steve Murrell

In order to lead healthy churches, leaders must intentionally build the right culture. But too many of us spend all our time working on sermons, programs, budgets and facilities. Those are all important, but not as important as culture.

Here’s the culture we try to build at Victory-Philippines:
– the relational community of a spiritual family
– the spiritual life of an international church movement
– the professional excellence of a multi-national corporation

Being relational, spiritual and professional all at the same time is difficult, but vitally important for us to be all God wants us to be.
